GNUplot with sixel support

On debian, just use these binaries (gnuplot backported from debian testing) or make your own using the attached patch or by adding to debian rules "--with-bitmap-terminals" right after --with-gd, so that debian/rules looks like:

--with-gd --with-bitmap-terminals \

Then set GNUTERM, like:

export GNUTERM="sixelgd size 1280,720 truecolor font arial 10"

You can mix regular images, ANSI colors and plot of function


This is what you can get, for example a visualization of chrony statistics.log wit the script shown above:


It works inside GNU screen or tmux when using the proper patches:

inside-screen inside-tmux

You can’t perform that action at this time.
